    GOW 2 FIXING YOUR BRIDGE TUTORIAL
    CREATED BY: P R O L II K E



    First let me specify exactly what this thread is for. This is were you come when you know exactly how to set up your bridge for you connection and you have been able to get host and now suddenly it dose not work anymore. I can only help you out if you are using this setup CAIN ABEL, ZONE ALARM PRO, WINDOWS XP. If you are using other programs then goodbye because this thread is not for you.

    I have put this easy tutorial together and most likely it will solve your problem and clear up the other threads from all your posts saying, "Well my bridge just suddenly stopped working".
    HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU GOT HOST?

    • It dose not say connecting to the match you just get into one( if it does say connecting turn off your Xbox as you are connecting and you do not lose any true skill )
    • On Cain Abel if you are not host you will get about 6-7 ips pop up right before you get into a game.
    • On Cain Abel if you are host you will get ips normally one at a time and once you get a game on the loading screen that is when the 6-7 ips come up.
    • When choosing map/game type you see the 6th vote.
    • If you put your slider on high the countdown would continue (if it stops you are not host)
    • When choosing weapon the zero will flash twice.

    Tutorial On How To Fix Your Bridge If After The Above Steps You have Realized Your Not Host (FOLLOW IN THIS ORDER)

    1. Turn off xbox 360
    2. open up cain abel
    3. Click the bottom left hosts tab
    4. Right click on the grid and choose "Remove All"
    5. Click the bottom left APR Tab
    6. Right click on the top grid and choose " Remove All"
    7. Close out of cain abel
    8. Shut down zone alarm
    9. Unplug the power cord to the router then modem
    10. Plug in FIRST the router then the modem
    11. Open up cain abel
    12. Re create your bridge as you did previously when it worked before (if you forgot see one of the many tutorials on this site).
    Thanks I hope this helped You out. Any questions post below and ill try to answer as soon as possible.

    ive had more luck with, full uninstalls of both zap and cain, followed by an ip change, than a router/modem reset, than reinstall, i did that and i just found 10 wingman games in the course of an hour.

    You can force a new WAN IP on a dynamic service (like cable unless you intentionally purchased a static IP) by changing your router's WAN MAC address. Whether or not your router supports that function depends upon the router. If you have a DD-WRT router, you are in luck.

    Otherwise, like adv1k said, unplug your modem overnight. Most ISPs renew their IP leases in the early AM.
